2:35 am
like child's play. >> and that's going to be a big battle. >> reporter: a battle over how much we, as a nation, borrow. currently to keep the government operating, our government takes out a $100 billion loan every month. a mind-boggling number. that's enough to buy every month four mcdonald's happy meals for every single person in the world. or a month's worth of groceries for almost every american or a new toyota camry for every person in philadelphia, houston, colorado springs, and san francisco. but now we're about to reach our credit limit. next month we'll max out at $14.3 trillion, that's right, trillion. leaders from both parties agree not allowing the government to continue to borrow would be a disaster. >> house prices would fall. stock prices would fall. we'd all be a lot less wealthy. >> reporter: but house republicans say that any bill that will raise that debt limit must also include massive spending cuts. >> the president says i want you to send me a clean bill.

the food that will help your vitamin d intake. for example, you can get to the 720 international units with just a 3 1/2-ounce piece of tuna. vitamin d is also known as the sunshine vitamin. perhaps now it's capable of keeping people out of the dark. linsey davis, abc news, new york. some students and parents in chicago schools are now up in arms over a school lunch policy. basically that policy says students must eat cafeteria food and they're not allowed to bring lunch from home anymore. principals say that nutrition concerns are the reason for the new rule. if students have a medical excuse they are allowed, though, to bring their own food. >> wow. imagine that. >> harsh, yeah. well, floodwaters along the red river are slowly going down allowing the people of fargo and morhead city to breathe a little bit easier, but rural areas beyond them have a long fight ahead. the land there is so flat that the river now extends some 20

2:45 am
there are hundreds of i.r.s. tax forms to choose from, but don't worry, most people only use about a dozen of them. a basic rule to follow when deciding which federal 1040 to use is, keep it simple. if you have just wage income to report, you might consider using the 1040ez. that short form only allows you to make standard deductions. many people file the short form when they actually have enough deductions and would be better off using a long form. so be aware of everything you can write off and don't forget those commonly overlooked state and local income taxes on your w-2. now, if you itemize your deductions, if you make more than $100,000 or if you were self-employed you do not have a choice. you must use a 1040 full form. no matter what form or schedule you need, you can get them from the post office, library, or go to irs.gov where you can download them or fill them out online. an increasing percentage of taxes are e-filed and you get your refunds more quickly than

3:31 am
that's scary. also ahead, concerns this morning about students' privacy after our orlando affiliate manages to buy, get, this names, addresses and phone numbers of thousands of students, information you'd think that school districts would keep private but not apparently in this case. >> yeah, it's hard to keep that information safe these days. and also coming up, you may remember that rob and i made a oscar's bet and rob lost and that meant that he had to baby-sit my twins. we sent along a camera. there are little beau and isabella. rob, you were good at that. second nature. >> i learned a lot of lessons on that day, folks. you are don't want to miss that story. >> oh boy. the bathrobe, we had to put that shot in there? but we begin with a scary situation last night. this taking place at new york's jfk airport. >> as we said it involved an air france a380 superjumbo jet about to take off for paris, and a comair regional jet just arrived from boston. >> wabc's lucy yang has the details and the first reaction from some of those who were on board.
3:32 am
>> the plane shake very, very violently. and then the next thing we knew told to hurry. >> reporter: comair passenger sebastian says he never heard a crash, that it felt more like the plane that hit a huge pothole as it swayed like a seesaw back and forth. thankfully, all 66 on board were still buckled in their seats and were not injured. >> it's only when we walk out that we had realize what had happened that the tail of our plane had been hit by another plane. >> reporter: 8:00 monday night comair flight 6293 from boston had just landed at jfk and was waiting to let the passengers off, when according to officials, an airfrance plane taxiing for takeoff clipped the tail of the plane. call it an airplane fender-bender. both planes were damaged but thankfully passengers were not hurt. we are told 500 on board the airfrance plane which is now being inspected. comair runs regional flights for delta. lucy yang, abc news, new york. >> scary moment. and another plane-related
3:33 am
incident to tell you about today. a delta airlines flight made an emergency landing at the airport in raleigh, north carolina. during its flight from jfk to ft. lauderdale, crew members reported an odd board smell believed to be due to an electrical problem. the plane did land safely and none of the 99 people on board was injured. turning overseas where officials in japan have now raised the severity of the nuclear crisis to the highest level. that makes it on par with the chernobyl disaster in 1986. level seven signifies a major accident with wider consequences than the previous level which was five, according to the international scale. now the top u.s. nuclear official says that it could take weeks or even months before the situation at fukushima becomes stable. survivors of the powerful earthquake last month have suffered through another aftershock. the strong quake caused buildings to sway but did not further damage that nuclear plant. a month after the disaster, more than 145,000 people are still living in shelters. more than 240,000 people are still without electricity.
3:34 am
and now in libya, rebel forces apparently are not ready to give up their fight against moammar gadhafi just yet. their leaders actually rejected a cease-fire proposal yesterday. the plan was turned down because they said it does not call for gadhafi to give up power. the longtime libyan leader had reportedly accepted that same peace plan on sunday. and the ongoing tension in oil-producing countries like libya is one of the factors contributing to those sky-high gas prices these days. the average price for a gallon in the u.s. now stands at $3.79. that's up 11 cents in the last week, and it's the highest price since september 2008 and the highest ever reported in the month of april. all of that does not bode well for the summer driving season, as you can imagine. that's when prices are typically at their highest. and these days parents have a lot to worry about when it comes to their kids' privacy especially with kids spending so much time on social media websites, but it's not the internet that's causing concern in florida. it's actually the public schools.
3:35 am
brent peterson of our orlando station wftv reports. >> reporter: most parents believe florida public schools protect the identities of their children. tamara says most parents are wrong. >> we're talking about a serious safety issue here. it's just horrible. >> reporter: the marion county school system will release for a price. personal information from what's called its student directory. for 65 bucks, we've got the names, addresses and phone numbers of every high school senior in the county. 4,000 of them. >> we don't want to deny the public what the public has the right to access. >> reporter: district spokesman kevin christian says the state requires it but florida department of education told channel 9, each district may determine whether it wants to release directory information at all, and if so, which information is released. orange county says, since it doesn't have to, it chooses not to. seminole county wouldn't release the information either and lake county wants to keep the list out of the hands of businesses that want to sell students something.
3:36 am
>> it shouldn't just be shared with anybody. >> reporter: tamara says anybody could sometimes be very dangerous. what if a registered sex offender asks for this information? >> we don't know if they are registered sex offender or not. >> reporter: christian says the school system is not allowed to inquire. >> they don't have to tell us who they are. >> reporter: most every school district publishes some information. this news release from lake county schools include students' names and photographs, but all districts also allow parents to keep their childrens' information private, which usually requires signing some forms. tamara says most parents aren't aware that they can opt out, she is, and would not allow her school-aged daughter to appear in our story. >> understandable. well, that was brent peterson wftv reporting. two brothers who claim their idea for facebook was stolen from them will not be getting anymore money from facebook founder mark zuckerberg. most of us were introduced to tyler and cameron winklevoss in the movie "the social network." they dropped their claim to facebook in exchange for $20
3:37 am
million as well as partial ownership of the site but brothers then sued to have that deal undone, claiming they did not understand exactly what they were agreeing to. yesterday, though, a federal appeals court unanimously rejected their suit. kindergartners in one named school district will get more than paint and pencils next year. each youngster is actually given an ipad on the first day of school. kind of nice. from the school superintendent says it's all in effort to change the way students learn. the $200,000 price tag did cause a bit of controversy but officials promised to find that money somewhere. man, i just had -- >> lucky kids. >> i wish i had it in my bag. >> you had a trapper keeper. >> that's big time. let's take a look at your weather now coming up for the day. the remnants of that wild weekend storm means rain into east and move into new england. the mideast. dry and windy in texas. that's no good for the fires down there. also snow expected in the rockies. late-day rain in the pacific northwest. >> normal temperatures for most of us today, 70 in atlanta, 59 in boston.
